Dog and Cat Diagnostics in Kearny, NJ
At Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital, part of our commitment to your pet’s health is to ensure they receive high quality care and that includes comprehensive imaging and laboratory services in Kearny, NJ. Our animal hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat various pet health conditions.
Pet diagnostics can help our team in creating a more complete picture of your pet’s health. Our animal hospital is equipped with the latest technology, including pet radiography to examine your companion’s musculoskeletal system. Radiographs are reviewed by a board-certified radiologist and can either ensure there are no underlying issues or allow us to diagnose and treat issues that may arise. Our team can create the most effective treatment plan to care for your pet’s specific condition.
In addition to digital radiography, we also use ultrasound imaging to view the abdominal organs and check for tumors and other issues, and echocardiography to evaluate the heart. Our ultrasound equipment is vital in the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions related to the heart and soft tissue organs, as our other tools may provide only partial information. We work with specialists to perform and interpret echocardiograms and in-depth abdominal ultrasounds.
In-House Laboratory Testing for Your Pet
At Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital, our team strives to provide care that improves the quality of your pet’s life. Annual pet laboratory testing allows us to stay up to date on any internal health changes your pet may experience, and enables our team to uncover illness or disease sooner, which can help make any treatment we provide more effective. With the use of our in-house lab in Kearny, NJ, we can perform a range of testing including:
- Blood work
- Fecal flotations
- Ear cytology
- Parasite testing
This testing can offer our veterinarians a healthy baseline for your pet and the advantage of early detection. When caught early, many disorders or diseases can be managed with appropriate medications or prescription diets to help control disease development, preserve quality of life, and possibly extend the life of your pet. We also have access to outside laboratory services for more advanced diagnostics such as biopsies.
